For my future, I plan on attending college in pursuit of an Accounting degree. I am mainly interested in the field of business and plan to use the principles taught in Accounting to formulate what avenue of business I would like to pursue. In high school, I learned what it means to be a leader that others respect and follow; by using what I have learned, I am confident that I will be able to create a business I have passion for and, in turn, give back to the community that helped me succeed.
